KENNEWICK, WA - Dutch Brothers Coffee is at it again. Owners Matt Barnes and Nate Frary presented a check Wednesday morning to the Tri-Citeis Cancer Center for $17,774.

The money was raised during the coffee chain's annual Pink Out Day, back in October.

The Cancer Center's foundation director says the money will help pay for 170 free mammograms for women in our community. 

"We've seen a huge increase in the need for these mammograms. I think the words gotten out about the program," said Elizabeth McLaughlin. "I also think people are doing a great job of taking care of their health and recognizing they need to get a mammogram after 40 and if you're uninsured or under-insured, the Cancer Center's going to be able to help you."

This is the third year Dutch Brothers has partnered with the Cancer Center for Pink Out Day; they've raised more than $30,000 to support free mammograms.
